The most significant landmark along Kuwait's Gulf Road is Kuwait Towers. This sculptured structure that resembles the conventional Arabian perfume bottles holds water. The towers have evolved into an urban monument representing Kuwait's progressive economic resurgence and as a major tourist destination. On the other side, the design is completed by a nod to the past through a minaret covered in bright enameled steel plates modeled by the mosaics adorn mosques and temples' domes.
THINGS TO DO AT KUWAIT TOWERS: • Learn about the utility of each structure: The main tower's two spheres and 185-meter height serve as 'reservoirs' for the second tower. With its extreme shape of a thin needle, the third tower was constructed primarily to complete the sculptural unit and house electrical machinery. Together, the three towers create a beautiful, diversified, and entirely original architectural composition that is virtually a sculpture and starkly contrasts with the surrounding low-rise structures. • It marks an exceptional, innovative contribution to twentieth-century architecture: It represents Kuwait's modernity and honors engineering in its purest form, as well as life and change. Here, East and West collide, and the past and present collide. Bright minds come together to create this gigantic solidification of human ingenuity, bringing together key moments from that particular period of history in a famous structure. • Observe the locale touch in this structure of international standards: The spheres are coated with steel plates that have been enameled and painted in a color scheme of blues, greens, and greys that is in keeping with the historical ornamental forms of the gulf architecture, giving them a spectacular appearance during the day and an eye-catching display at night. • Understand the breakthrough and trailblazing concept that revolutionized cvilizations: It can be viewed as a piece of art that captures the period in history when enormous human intelligence became apparent in science and technology. This monument is a testament to the development of the water-related cultural heritage of the nomadic societies and urban settlers of this region who overcame the water scarcity by developing behavioral patterns and spatial strategies to survive through this life-threatening situation.
